Pre-K Program

Tne Country Playhouse Learning Center

Classes Offered

Our Pre-Kindergarten program will prepare your child for Kindergarten by further expanding upon the developmental aspects of their individual growth. Our program offers various learning centers and developmentally appropriate activities where children are exposed to social, physical, emotional and cognitive skills. We prepare children for Kindergarten by exposing them to academic guidelines while continuing to focus on self- esteem and independence skills through our enrichment activities.  In addition to schedules and routines our learning center promotes growth in a variety of ways, and we follow the Kindergarten entrance guidelines set forth by the Enumclaw School District to ensure that your child is fully ready to enter Kindergarten with an excellent academic head start.
